Restaurant Uses Surveillance Video To Make Fun Of Burglars

This is a.... different approach of using surveillance video:

It's gotten 75,000 views in a week so seems like decent marketing?

Update: Now the video is past 2.1 million views, as it has evidently gone viral.

What do you think?


Clever marketing and a great wanted poster... a 2fer we can all appreciate!

I like it! I've never seen something quite like this - a crime being used for advertising. I'm going to share it with my customers. Maybe VMS companies will have an 'export to iMovie' feature in the future to help with creating these types of promo videos ;)

Hans, could be a value added service....

Add button to your app: "Create Advertisement from Video Clip"

Unfortunately not allowed in France (private rights...and so on, till now..) , but so funny

Maybe this will start a new marketing trend.

The American Kennel Club might be interested in using this clip:

Brilliant !

Who was the genius behind the ad?

Update: Now the video is past 2.1 million views, as it has evidently gone viral. That's 2 million views in the past 2 days. An incredible success for a restaurant with only 2 locations.

This might be a template for other aggressive businesses and worth sharing with end users.

Basically, they are turning a profit on a burglary, how wild.

So much for security as a cost center...

So much for security as a cost center...

Or even crime for that matter.

This is making that "Create Advertisement from Video Clip" idea sound much better.

I love it, but for his business sake i would probably avoid the racial speak.
